Editorial Reviews

In 1943 to support the overseas troops engaged in World War II, Major League Baseball created an official film recapping the World Series championship games. Since then, these official highlight films have evolved into comprehensive documentaries that include classic footage from the television broadcasts, dynamic scenes shot by the Major League Baseball Productions crews, and exclusive interviews with the key players and managers from the Fall Classic. This video is just one in a series of exciting and comprehensive programs. So many of the greatest moments from America’s National Pastime are captured in the World Series DVD collection: Don Larsen’s perfect game; Bill Mazeroski’s and Joe Carter’s World Series-ending home runs; the unforgettable shots of Carlton Fisk, Kirk Gibson, and Kirby Puckett; the dynastic Yankees, Cardinals, A’s, and Reds; and the underdog champions--Dodgers, Mets, and Twins. All of these Fall Classic memories, and more, are showcased in the official World Series DVD collection. *1964: St. Louis Cardinals vs. New York Yankees--This historic Fall Classic saw Bob Gibson strike out 31 Yankees over 27 innings and Mickey Mantle’s last World Series Home Run (record 18th), and the end of an era as the Cardinals dethroned the Yankees. *1967: St. Louis Cardinals vs. Boston Red Sox--St. Louis once again went toe-to-toe with Boston led by Triple Crown-winning Carl Yastrezemski. The Redbirds and ace-on-the-hill Bob Gibson proved victorious in seven games. 1968: St. Louis Cardinals vs. Detroit Tigers--In the "Year of the Pitcher" Bob Gibson and the Cardinals met the Detroit Tigers. Gibson struck out a record 17 batters in Game One, then won Game Four--his seventh consecutive complete-game World Series victory. However, the Tigers prevailed in seven games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great St. Louis baseball nostalgia January 5, 2007
By x
This DVD is a great way for any Cardinals fan to experience or re-experience the 60's-era Cardinals dynasty. Brock, Gibson, and many other Cardinals greats are all here. The video pretty much shows the last pitch of each at bat that took place during the three World Series. This is great because you can watch the whole series quickly, but still follow exactly how the games unfolded. Great St. Louis baseball nostalgia here -- the old Busch Stadium is referred to as "brand new" and "state-of-the-art" a few times. Harry Caray (who started in St. Louis before moving on to Chicago) even narrates one of the films. All in all just a great DVD -- too bad the Cards couldn't win all three.

5.0 out of 5 stars BASEBALL CLASSIC ERA May 28, 2008
Verified Purchase
I just got this and have watched all three of the shows and all are so much fun to watch. To see Mickey Mantle hit four HRs off the Cards in 1964 was fantastic. To see Yaz in 1967 after his triple crown year was totally cool. And Bob Gibson, Lou Brock, Orlando Cepeda, a very young Reggie Smith in 1967 brought back so many memories. And my fav WS the 1968 with the Tigers. Al Kaline (hits like he is 20 again), Jim Northrup (hits grand slam), Denny McLain (31 game winner) and Mickey Lolich (won 3 games in series) was awesome. Bob Gibson again is classic and strikes out 17 Tigers in one game. Sure the video quality was so so and the sound a bit muddy but were talking 40-44 years ago. Even the crowd shots were cool. If you want to see true HALL OF FAMERS playing without steroids just get this and several of the other videos and you will love it. I'm not even a big Cards, Yanks, Tigers or Red Sox fan...I'm just a big baseball fan and these videos are too cool for school. Next one I gotta get is the 1972-74 Oakland A's. PLAY BALL!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cardinals May 17, 2008
By D. jean
It's excellent watching the Cardinals battle the Yankees in their last hurrah, or the impossible dream Red Sox in a classic 7 gamer, or watching them battle the Tigers in a classic tale of two different series in one. Also enjoyed hearing Harry Carey do the narration as well. Just wished they had released the Cardinals World Series highlights in one complete set like they did for the Yankees and not piecemeal.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing... December 12, 2012
Verified Purchase
I was looking forward to seeing Gibson's classic World Series performances, but the editing skipped a ton of details. Not the in depth story I was looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three Classic '60s Cardinals World Series Showdowns February 16, 2012
From 1946 to 1987, the St Louis Cardinals appeared in the World Series on seven different occasions; incredibly, all seven of those encounters went the distance - seven full games before a champion was crowned. This particular DVD captures all the thrilling action from the three Fall Classics the Redbirds participated in during the 1960s, when a couple of Hall of Fame legends - Bob Gibson and Lou Brock - stole the show for St Louis.

"Stealing" was of course, Lou Brock's forte; despite stealing nary a bag in the '64 showdown against the New York Yankees, Brock went on to swipe a World Series record fourteen bases - evenly divided between the '67 and '68 match-ups with the Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers. If it seems like Brock was constantly on base, allowing him to run wild against Boston and Detroit; he was! In the twenty-one games played, Brock hit an astounding .391. Ironically, one of the most memorable moments involving Brock came in Game Five of the '68 Series, when Detroit left-fielder Willie Horton nailed the Cardinal speedster with a perfect throw at the plate; he chose not to slide, instead trying to leap past catcher Bill Freehan, who applied the swift tag to record the key out. That play changed the entire momentum of the Series, enabling Detroit to overcome a three games to one deficit, as pitcher Mickey Lolich shocked St Louis in the Game Seven finale; prevailing over the great Bob Gibson.

Gibson's World Series resume is even more impressive than Brock's. Of the eleven Series games the Cardinals won in the '60s, Gibson was responsible for seven of those victories.
